Description

Some Grade 1 scrambling required (harder variations exist) .

It's worth getting a scrambling guidebook for the detail.

On Fatmap you can't really make out the shape of the Inaccessible Pinnacle itself - it is a fin of rock atop the summit of Sgùrr Dearg and requires roped rock climbing skills or hiring a professional guide.

Numerous scrambling options exist in descent, including reversing the ascent route.
